Since round about the birth of France's civil code in 1804, some in Germany have perceived it as a so-called Germanic law. Verena Peters traces how this idea evolved, particularly by taking into consideration the political situation between France and Germany. The perception of a Germanic »Code civil« varies from it being the result of serious scholarly effort, to it being a tool for propaganda. On the one hand, it could be taken as an example of two nations' friendship, on the other, as a basis for racist ideology.
